America's Cup World Series' sailors tell YBW what their dream boat is. What is yours? Maybe you would like to helm a Whitbread winner like Steinlager 2, or be at the controls of a classic Riva. Let us know your suggestions below.
How many of us would love to sail Moiteissier’s Joshua through the Roaring Forties?
Or speed across the water in Bluebird K7?
Or captain the great passenger steamship, SS Great Britain?
Or take our chances and lead an expedition on the Kon-Tiki raft?
YBW asked sailors at the America’s Cup World Series in Portsmouth recently which famous vessel floats their boat!
